What do you get when you throw three murderers into one prison cell together? Well, when those characters happen to be based on the likenesses of celebrities Frank Vincent (Goodfellas, Raging Bull, The Sopranos), Marky Ramone (formerly of The Ramones) and Brea Grant (Heroes, Dexter), you can bet that the outcome will be anything but ordinary. From the creator of IDW’s hit series Crawl to Me (now in development to become a feature film), comes Alan Robert’s Killogy, an off-the-wall, genre-busting mash-up of crime, dark comedy, and horror. Written and illustrated by Alan Robert, the respected musician from the hard-rock group Life of Agony.

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Oct 5, 2012

    Robert earned a lot of good faith from me after I read Crawl to Me, which had an ending that I'm still reeling from. I'm confident that he's going to put his own spin on the zombie genre and make this stand out. The idea of casting his comic characters is a new one and I don't think that just any artist can pull it off. It's tough to nail the likeness of people that anyone can just look up on Google and see a picture of. Robert's characters not only look like the actors portraying them, but they act and feel the way they should as well. It's a movie in a comic and it works very well. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Oct 24, 2012

    The real question that everyone should ask themselves is: “Is this gimmick strong enough to bring me back?” My answer is yes. I really liked it and even though it’s a zombie story and I’m still a bit warn out on those; I liked the approach. It was less about the monsters or how normal people change in that situation and more about how stone cold killers would react put in the same place. That’s a pretty damn cool concept and will definitely have me back for the rest of the series. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - thorverine Oct 24, 2012

    This is a good first issue to a really odd story. Roberts draws his celebrity muses perfectly and mixes in different genres for a unique storytelling experience. This is one to look into further, especially if you're a fan of the character models Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Lonmonster Oct 15, 2012

    The combination of both Roberts writing and artwork is truly unique, providing a perfect balance of comedy, drama, and horror. Im really excited to see how the characters will band together to overcome the imminent undead threat, and how Robert will tie it all up. Theres no doubt Killogy will be one of the years most fun horror books Read Full Review

    Geekality - Joe Sarnicola Oct 25, 2012

    This book is not for everyone due to its graphic nature, but if you want to see an ingenious spoof of pop-culture icons, gangsters, zombies and musicians, well this might be the book for you. Read Full Review

    Read Comic Books - Richard Dessler Oct 24, 2012

    All forms of media have been saturated with zombies for years now and if you're going to add a new comic to a flooded market, it needs to be something special. However, this is not Walking Dead, and it is not Marvel Zombies. It's not even Marvel Zombies 4. Read Full Review
